You've come to the right place. Help is here. Are you both using an iphone? Do you each have your own completely separate Apple id? Often times this happens when two iPhone users are using the same Apple ID. This link will give you some more information about your Apple ID and even help to create a new one if necessary http://spr.ly/6585BE57c

Found out my wife’s itunes id had my name so her phone showed her id as my name with her email address and itune account. My name also appeared with my email address. I changed her name on her apple id. And it shows correctly, checked her share id on Verizon and it shows her phone has her name for caller id but when she calls it still shows up as me. Is there a delay time involved here?

Thanks, your info steered me in the right direction even though it hasn’t worked yet. Tried to give correct answer on site but it says question not answered yet.

Thanks again,

Gary Knight

According to My Verizon website the Share Name ID shows my wife’s name (changed Sunday) but when calling a Comcast phone number it still shows up on caller ID as me.

Thanks for your inputs, guess it will never change as its been way over 24 hours.
